RESEARCH METHODS revision presentation

(0)
Made for AQAPsychology A-level but could be easily adapted for other boards. This is a presentation I work through with my students while they are revising research methods - it includes over 60 slides (some with content and some with indications of a task to complete). I usually teach short sections of research methods and then get them to complete the activities in the corresponding booklet. This took me 3-4 lessons of 90 minutes each to complete it all but some could be set for homework. This includes a sample essay on designing research and a summary table for features of science which are areas students often struggle with. The corresponding booklet can be found here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/research-methods-revision-booklet-of-activities-28-pages-aqa-psychology-11623089?theme=0

Open evening activity psychology

(1)
This activities for open evenings or tasters for A-level Psychology. 1 - SERIAL KILLER OR PSYCHOLOGIST - I glued the descriptions of the person to the back of the photo and laminated them as individual cards. I then give the set to a prospective student to sort them into two piles as to whether they think they are a serial killer or a psychologist. It leads to interesting discussions of why they have put them in those piles and can lead to Lombroso and or stereotypes. 2 - INTERESTING CONDITIONS - students match the name of the condition to its description (for example - prosopagnosia and synaesthesia.) 3 - TRUE or FALSE- cards with statements on that can be put into a jar and students pull one out and discuss with you whether they think its true or false. Also put in a poster of topics we study for AQA psychology for the display board
